How to make energy bars

To make them you will need a food processor. It does not really matter what type as long as it is able to process some nuts and dried fruits.

So throw the prunes, dates and almond in your food processor and pulse until it looks like a sticky dough. It does not really matter what size the almonds will be. All you are after here is turning the dates and prunes into soft, sticky paste. This will literally take only a few seconds.

Then you just transfer this into a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients – in this case it is a mixture of various seeds. Combine this together and transfer into a rectangular/square cake pan. Make sure you line the pan with baking paper. This will help you remove the bar mix from the cake pan.

Now press down hard until – make sure to press well. Try to even up the surface. Now just place it in the freezer for at least 1 hour before slicing them.

How to store no bake energy bars

The best place to store these bars in the freezer. After you cut them into bars/squares just wrap each one in a sheet of baking paper or cling film and put them in a zip-lock bag. Just grab one (or a few) and go. They will be ready to eat right-away.

Good to know before making these no bake energy bars

  • You can keep these DIY energy bars in your freezer up to 3 weeks (when stored in an air-tight bag or container) but in my experience the longer you keep them in your freezer the more likely they will absorb some of the unpleasant odor.
  • These bars will be soft and sticky but they should hold their shape.
  • They can be turned into energy bites.
  • Vegan friendly – these bars contain only dried fruits, nuts and seeds so they are also suitable for vegans.
  • This recipe yields 10 bars, each weighing 1.4 ounce/40 grams. It can be easily doubled.
